The Lower Silesia Grand Prix goes to “The Good Postman”! The awards of the 14th Millennium Docs Against Gravity have been granted!

The jury composed of: Konrad Imiela, Robert Gonera, Agnieszka Wolny-Hamkało granted the Lower Silesia Marshal’s Grand Prix of the  of Euro 3,000 to the film “The Good Postman” by Tonislaw Hristow and a special mention to the film “Last Men in Aleppo” by Feras Fayyad.

The jury awarded “The Good Postman” for “a skilful focusing on the biggest problems of today’s world in one image: aversion to refugees, the mechanisms of populism, rural societies dying out, the arrogance of the authority, ageing society, poverty and the problems of borderland societies.

For a subtle, but powerful voice on refugees.

For a deeply humanistic perspective in which man still counts and bad life conditions do not deprive him or her of the power to act. For reminding us that a man can always take decisions which affect reality, even if he or she loses.

For the tender irony in portraying the characters, in whom we can see our politicians, neighbours or friends.

The jury has appreciated the critical dimension of the film as well as is perfect production within its genre. It combines journalism with literary parable and anecdotal character with realism.

For the facet that the filmmakers let us get to know the good postman – a character, who looks after what he believes in, is wise and sensitive to other people’s problems.

For its warmth, humour and intelligence.”

The jury also granted an honourable mention to the film “Last Men in Aleppo”. “For a powerful, radical, painfully true voice which should be heard by all. For a shocking documentary which shows people’s cruelty and courage, stupidity and nobleness. For showing things we usually turn our eyes away from.

We would like to dedicate this honourable mention to Khaled’s daughters, hoping that the world in which they grow up will become better one day” – says the jury’s justification of the verdict.
